Every time there is a Firefox Update, I end up going back to the previous shortcut on my desktop to find my bookmarks, passwords, etc. Please advise, as I delay doing updates for this reason. Very frustrated!

Are you saying your profile is being replaced with a new profile?

Sometimes when the browser thinks there is a problem with the profile, it will create a new one.

Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.
